At L.I.F.E. Chiropractic in Phoenix, AZ we want you to know there is nothing mysterious about the basis of chiropractic. It’s a natural method of healing by removing anything in your body that is keeping the nerves from working properly.
Nerves control everything in your body!
We focus on finding and correcting the cause of conditions and illness, rather than just treating the symptoms. In our current health care system most people wait until they have symptoms before they go to the doctor. If you wait until you have symptoms the disease/sickness has been in your body for some time. Symptoms are a very poor way to measure ones health. Doctors of chiropractic practice wellness and prevention care.
Chiropractors focus on building your health by educating you on all aspects of health such as nutrition, exercise, and most importantly your Neurological System. With a normally functioning spine and healthy Nerve System, your body is able to heal itself of any condition.
Misalignments of your spine and poor health
No part of your body escapes the dominance of your nervous system. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments—called subluxations—can cause poor health or function, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord itself. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally.
Natural health care without drugs or surgery
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally.
Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment—the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment—corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own.
